WHAT IS IT? - A pivotal, transformational moment when women committed to social and racial justice come together to talk about the challenges at the intersection of gender and race during a 2-day weekend race-talks retreat. It's a powerful moment to participate in a courageous conversation about race, racism and women and what happens when you are NOT equipped to navigate this delicate space.

"The SHETalks WETalk RaceTalks for Women workshop was a crucial element in the development of myself as a white woman who is still unpacking my invisible backpack and understanding the full breadth of my white privilege. As a white woman, a human who strongly values connection and respect, and as a mental health professional, this workshop greatly supported (and expanded) my current desire to connect on a deeper level with myself and others, in order to genuinely understand the core values and beliefs I hold that inform the "reality" I live in (in relation to the varied realities of other individuals of different races). If you are a woman seeking to be the change you wish to see in the world, I strongly recommend this workshop to continue on your journey of growth and self-discovery. Catrice has motivated me to continue discovering and enhancing my current values to increase respect, collaboration, and justice in my community!" - Katie
"Participating in SHETalks WETalk was the first step in my personal work to become an ally. The forum allowed me to begin my journey of self reflection and education around how I have both supported oppression through learned behaviors and worked against it. My biggest take away is that without looking inward and taking the time to educate myself I will continue to be a part of the problem. This work is ongoing and lifelong but this weekend gave me a foundation to work from and I will forever be thankful to the women in our group." - Kirsten Romero-Case
